    As Rolf said on today it’s not just the Saudi event hurting Pebble, but all these appearance fee events hurting the entire west coast swing —imo the best swing — starting in HAWAII and especially Sony next week because it’s so close to Abu Dhabi time wise but yet so far distance wise.

    The new rules will make many stars have to appear at the sites opposite the appearance fee events in the near future, which is naturally exciting.

    But to Rolfs point events like Sony— which are not exactly opposite the appearance Fee events but close enough to be impacted —should be rewarded similarly.
